DVB adapter driver DVB-C DVB-T switching - Linux DVB API V5
 
I'm developing a DVB adapter driver (kernel module) which supports DVB-C and DVB-T reception. I want to use the Linux DVB API V5 (linuxtv.org).

Is it possible to do a API call which will switch between DVB-C and DVB-T?
Which call is this? FE_SET_PROPERTY? Which property?
Or is this impossible what is best practice for doing this switch?

Hope you can help,

Regards,

Rob

Not possilble via API
 
Via the linux media mailing list i got this reply.
Thanks Markus

--------- Linux Media Mailing List reply -----------------------------

The current way is to register 2 frontends when doing it with the kernel drivers.
One for DVB-C and another one for DVB-T, Applications currently cannot handle a single frontend node with both features.

Best Regards,
Markus

Solved
 
A multi frontend approach as described by the mailing list is implemented. It made the driver somewhat complicated because a device that is opened in DVB-C mode can not be used for DVB-T mode, but it is working now.
